First Look

True Details is one of many brand names produced and sold by Squadron Mail Order. In this release, we have a very nicely cast detail set to add the starboard avionics bay located in the forward fuselage of the F-104G Starfighter. This set is designed for the Hasegawa 1/32 F-104G kit but may work with the recent Italeri kit as well.

This set includes the bulkheads, avionics modules, fuse panel, pressure cylinder, and positionable access door. This set works nicely with True Details 32517 Vulcan Cannon which enhances the gun bay inside the port forward fuselage bay. As you can see in the images, the casting is sharp and will look nice with some detail painting.

My sincere thanks to Squadron Mail Order for this review sample!
